Roseanne Barr Speaks Out, Describes Conversation ABC Before Show Cancellation

This whole situation is sad.

Published

Earlier this week, we all witnessed the complete and total implosion of Roseanne Barr’s career in real time after she made a controversial comment insulting former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett on Twitter.

Not long after the comments were made, the ABC network which just brought her sitcom “Roseanne” back for it’s 10th season, pulled the plug on the project’s second season, causing hundreds of people to lose their jobs.

Barr’s co-stars also took to Twitter to denounce the actress’s comments and distance themselves from the controversy as best they could.

Well, Rosie herself, in a series of now deleted tweets, has come out and described her conversation with Disney-ABC Television Group President Ben Sherwood.

“I begged Ben Sherwood at ABC 2 let me apologize & make amends,” wrote Barr in a series of tweets. “I begged them not to cancel the show.”

To make amends, she said she told Sherwood she’d do anything, including going on a publicity tour for weeks for free.

“I told them I was willing to do anything & asked 4 help in making things right. I’d worked doing publicity 4 them 4 free for weeks, traveling, thru bronchitis,” she wrote. “I begged 4 ppls jobs.”

“He said: what were you thinking when you did this? I said: I thought she was white, she looks like my family!” she wrote. “He scoffed & said: ‘what u have done is egregious, and unforgivable.’ I begged 4 my crews jobs. Will I ever recover from this pain? omg.”

“I also told Ben Sherman [sic] that I would go in hospital to check my meds, bc the stress had made them less effective. I begged like 40 motherf—–s,” she wrote. “Done now.”

Barr went on to state that ABC is supposedly replacing the reruns of her show with episodes of “Cosby,” noting this was “hilariously gross.”

There’s no official word on if that’s true or not, but if so, wow, talk about hypocritical and tone deaf. Yikes.

Roseanne also said that she was “ashamed” to think that her child co-star Jayden Rey might think she doesn’t like her because she’s black.

“The saddest part of all is 4 Jayden Rey on the show whom I grew 2 love so much & am so ashamed of myself that she would ever think I do not love her bc she is African American. It’s the most gawd awful painful thing. I can’t let myself cave in tho.”

The real issue isn’t that she was fired and the show cancelled, but the fact that ABC is completely and totally inconsistent with their espoused value system, which seems to be the case all across the entertainment industry, as people like Bill Maher, who made an even worse racially charged comment, are still employed.

All we really want is for these people to practice what they preach.

Twitter Blacklists Investigative Journalist After CNN Exposé

Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical. 

Published

The mainstream media really doesn’t like to lose.  In fact, much of their thirst for power over their rivals is simply so that they can continue to bully us into watching. And with so many organizations completely aware of how this horrible system is set up, outlets with similar world views tend to look out for one another – particularly when it comes to attack from the other side of the media spectrum. Americans on Friday were beginning to accuse Twitter of doing just that. Critics accused Twitter Thursday of banning Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe from its platform over the right-wing guerrilla news outlet’s damning exposé of CNN. Project Veritas relaunched its #ExposeCNN campaign this week by sharing footage of CNN technical director Charles Chester revealing the liberal network’s dirty laundry. In the footage, Chester claimed that CNN’s “focus” during the 2020 election campaign was to “get rid of” President Trump, that the network hyped its coronavirus coverage for “gangbuster” ratings, and that it aims to “help” Black Lives Matter. On Thursday, O’Keefe’s Twitter account, which was sharing Project Veritas’ reporting, was permanently suspended over alleged use of “fake accounts.” “As outlined in our policy on platform manipulation and spam, ‘You can’t mislead others on Twitter by operating fake accounts,’ and ‘you can’t artificially amplify or disrupt conversations through the use of multiple accounts,'” a Twitter spokesperson told Fox News. This would be akin to a publisher retweeting a post that one of their authors had written, advertising the book that they collaborated on. Twitter truly isn’t even hiding it anymore, and that is incredibly unethical.

Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…
